I'm making my second cannon and it is going to be a magazine fed rifle. In the magazine will be pieces of pipe same size as barrel. But I'm notsure which size barrel 1" 1/2" or 3/4"

He wants to know what barrel size to use.

I say use all three, make your cannon have the ability to swap barrels.

Do you really need to ask us which size of barrel to choose?
It all depends on your own flavor, availability and cost of materials, and most important: for which barrel do you think you can get the best* ammo for.

*Cheap, comes in large amounts, effective.
